Circuit Des Yeux - Reaching For Indigo LP
Label: Drag City
Vocalist, composer and producer Haley Fohr has been Circuit Des Yeux since she was eighteen years old. Born in the year of the Dragon in Indiana's own "Star City"(that being Lafayette, IN). she records constantly with releases on De Stjil, Thrill Jockey and her own imprint. Meanwhile, she has played shows everywhere, touring all the time. She has been based in Chicago since 2012. All this was endeavored to be done out of necessity, in order for Haley to be Circuit des Yeux and for Circuit des Yeux to be Haley.
The records and shows have been done in primarily DIY fashion, as a means of navigating the world, genuflecting with Sagittarian energy. Circuit des Yeux reflects from a singular angle, looking deeply, at times unblinkingly, at connections and collisions of the cerebral and the physical, with a sense of colloquial grit and an equally opaque transcendent spirit in her words and her music.
Reaching For Indigo is the 5th album from Circuit Des Yeux. It references a moment that fell down in the life of Haley Fohr on Jan. 22, 2016. Reaching For Indigo adds to the definition of Circuit des Yeux, as she realizes her goal of becoming one of the most distinctive voices of this time.
